Cibo Catering chef volunteers to bake 20,000 cookies for Mozel Sanders’ Thanksgiving dinner – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather forecast

The Mozel Sanders Foundation is ready to serve 10,000 meals to those in need on Thanksgiving Day!

20,000 cookies are currently being baked by Chef Whitney Barnett, owner of CIBO Catering, all to benefit the Mozell Sanders Foundation and their Thanksgiving dinner.

Amora Scott, director of fund development for Mozel Sanders, and Barnett joined us Wednesday on “Life.Style.Live!” to share how their partnership came about and how they plan to bake all those cookies in time for Thanksgiving.

Stephen Mozel Sanders and logistics manager John Lawson also joined us to discuss satellite locations serving free Thanksgiving meals and how you or someone you know can get one.

Regional kitchens are also mobilizing to help feed hungry families this Thursday.

The Mozel Sanders Foundation has again put in place a “Plan B” to be able to feed families this year for Thanksgiving.

Local churches and kitchens are mobilizing to make sure no one goes hungry this year. “Our goal is to feed 10,000 people this year, even with the continuing challenges of COVID-19,” said Stephen Mozel James Sanders, CEO of the Mozel Sanders Foundation. “It’s a lot less than what we normally do, but we’re still committed to providing meals this year.”

In the past, the Foundation has held Thanksgiving Day operations from Atherton Hall at Butler University, but again this year, due to social distancing, this location would not be operating. This year marks the 51st year of serving families this Thanksgiving for the Mozel Sanders Foundation. Please see the attached Thanksgiving schedule for media opportunities.

“We are pleased with our partners for this year and how everyone has come together again,” shares Stephanie Sanders, COO of the Mozel Sanders Foundation.

“Being in our 51st year, we were unable to stop our mission due to ongoing coronavirus concerns. We knew we had to go ahead and feed people.

Mozel Sanders Foundation, Inc. is the nation’s oldest family organization that feeds the most people on Thanksgiving Day. “We believe a healthy mind starts with a full stomach, so that’s what motivates us to do what we do. We also deliver groceries twice a month from our base Mt. Vernon Community Missionary Baptist Church, 709 N. Belmont Avenue, Indianapolis IN 46222,” Stephen Sanders shares.
